Subject Information

Physical Education is an important part of our school curriculum.  As a school we value Physical Education for the part it plays in physical, social and mental well-being.  We want our pupils to experience a wide range of activities and sports and in turn we want pupils to develop a love of physical activity and see this as something they will want to continue to do once they have left school because it contributes to their overall well-being.  We aim to educate our pupils of the benefits of regular exercise and also develop their skills in areas such as teamwork, co-operation and resilience.  As our pupils move from Key Stage 3 into Key Stage 4 we introduce a greater element of choice and focus on introducing pupils to activities that encourage an active lifestyle and positive well-being.  In addition to core Physical Education in Years 7-11 pupils can also opt to study GCSE Physical Education and/or Cambridge National Sport Science, GCSE Dance in Years 10 and 11 and A level PE or Cambridge Technical Sport and Physical Activity in Year 12 and 13.
